Gisha (Persian language: گیشا, also called Kuy-e Nasr کوی نصر), originally KEYSHA (from the names of its two founders, Keynejad and Shapouri) is a neighbourhood in Tehran, Iran. The neighborhood was known as a center for youth recreation, shopping, and dating. Gisha is home to the world's fourth-tallest concrete tower (as of 2007), the Milad Tower (برج میلاد), and also to the marketplace, Bazzar e Nasr (بازار نصر). Iranian Bank of Agriculture is also headquartered in Gisha.
